If you'll just be skiing and not be making any regional day trips by train, you're usually better off with a local ski pass, so that you just need a rail pass for your transfers across the country. Just add up the normal ticket prices and compare that to pass prices as explained here
Assuming a transfer from the airport to Wilderswil, plus the transfers you listed, a 4-day Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
would be cheaper than regular tickets and other passes
. You would use the free travel days for all transfer except St. Moritz - Pontresina because that's a short and inexpensive trip (you do get a 50% discount with the pass). Please note the several discounts currently offered on passes, as listed in the forum
Carrying skis on the train is quite common in Switzerland; most trains have designated areas to put them. But of course it's more convenient without them.
One more tip: I would personally not book two different hotels in St. Moritz and Pontresina. These towns are so close to each other, you can easily travel back and forth between them and just stay in one hotel. Hotels close to rail stations can be found here
Have a great trip!
